Fareham Borough Council has published a preliminary draft charging schedule for the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). CIL is a new system that requires development to contribute towards infrastructure, such as local community facilities, schools and transport improvements. Infrastructure is needed to support the growth of the Borough and to deliver the development proposals outlined in the Council's Core Strategy, which sets out how much development will take place within the Borough to 2026.
The preliminary draft charging schedule shows how much the Council proposes new development should contribute to improving Fareham's infrastructure. Fareham Borough Council are keen to ensure that the widest possible range of developers, landowners and members of the public are able to comment on the document .
Councillor Keith Evans, Executive Member for Strategic Planning and Environment, said: "This is an opportunity for people to have their say about how new development can financially contribute to meeting the infrastructure needs of the Borough."
You can read the draft charging schedule and complete a consultation form at www.fareham.gov.uk/consultation (until 30 April). Paper copies will be available from the Civic Offices or can be requested by phoning 01329 236100 and asking for Strategic Planning and Design.
